Publicity for Magicians

Robert E. Bernhard
Publicity for Magicians by Robert E. Bernhard

From the introduction my Ormond McGill:

Few people are more fitted to discuss publicity for magicians than Robert Bernhard. I say this not because as a publicity man he has brought fame and fortune to waitresses and elevator girls who are now movie stars or because he has been my good friend for many years, but because he himself was a magician and knows the peculiar problems of the profession.

Under pressure, he is usually willing to admit he was probably the worst performer to ever inflict himself on a long suffering yet patient and forgiving public. Nevertheless, for several years he...

The Last Word on Cups and Balls

Eddie Joseph
The Last Word on Cups and Balls by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

Every piece of information - idea - suggestion and routine has been independently created, developed, exploited and tested by the author some time or other. The reader is therefore assured, he is not getting any "second-hand" material in consequence.

The colossal amount of material crammed between these covers, will provide the progressive manipulator with a wealth of valuable assets.

The book has been divided into three parts. The first supplies detailed explanation for nearly forty new moves and passes. The second is kept apart for the creation of novel effects...

49 Easy To Do Card Tricks by Percy Abbott

From the introduction:

Included in the 49 effects are some that are new and some that have been favorites of professional Magicians for years, but all of them have been tested on their merits as entertaining and mystifying tricks.

All of these tricks can be performed with any deck of playing cards, with little or no preparation beforehand, and in compiling them, it has been the aim to include only such tricks as may be performed simply with a pack of playing cards, without the necessity of any extra paraphernalia.

These tricks are easy to do, and may be performed once you have the directions...

15 Exciting Minutes with a Borrowed Deck by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

The routine comprises five different effects, each able to stand out on its own merit. When combined, you will confuse the sharpest mind, the logical reason being that you appear to be doing the same thing over and over again, but you vary your secret procedure with each repetition.

All sleights have been eliminated and even if one had not done a single card trick before, he will still be able to bewilder and earn the reputation of a highly skilled card worker. The tricks are so designed that at no stage do you appear to be taking any active part — your spectators...
